Deruta, Italy tin glazed earthenware six piece tea or coffee service. The opaque white glazed majolica is hand decorated with a floral bouquet decoration featuring red tulip blooms on both sides, and the lidded pieces have pear finials.
Teapot with lid stands approximately 4.6" tall x 7.38" longest x 3" widest. Sugar with lid stands approximately 4" tall x 5.4" (across handles) x 2.5" widest. Creamer stands approximately 2.2" tall x 5" longest x 2.2" widest. Tray measures approximately 8.6" long x 6".
Good condition with only small glaze flake to teapot handle's wings (see photo) and slight flake to one of the sugar handle's "wings". If you are a majolica or faience collector you already know how very minor these faults are for this type of earthenware. Each piece signed "Deruta Italy".
This is a charming set with a lovely decoration and form in a diminutive size.
